The purpose of this project was to locate a potential funding source and write a grant for an education program to prevent financial abuse among older adults.
The program will be conducted in 10 senior centers throughout Los Angeles County. Twenty 8-week programs, each consisting of 300 individuals, will be provided in both English and Spanish. The host agency will be the Theresa Lindsay Multipurpose Senior Center. The Weingart Foundation was chosen as the potential funder.
The goals are to increase participants' general knowledge about financial abuse, improve their ability to detect frauds and perpetrators, inform them about available resources, and increase their confidence in their ability to report financial abuse. The program will include videos, case scenarios, and discussion. Pre-tests/post-tests will be used to evaluate knowledge gain and confidence levels.
The actual submission of the proposal was not a requirement of the thesis project.
